No head in the pour. Pumpkin aroma. Not much hops.Pumpkin and ginger taste comes on strong. It was a good spiced ale.

Very light on pumpkin and spices in the taste but bold in the nose. Still this makes it a more balanced version of this Thanksgiving treat. Malts are a bit thin, but evident over the pumpkin. Hoppy finish mixes well with the spices.

Michigan Brewing Company Screaminí Pumpkin Spiced Ale 12 oz bottle Recent bottling, carved into 10/06 Medium pour in a tulip glass. Poured copper with a whiteish fizzy quickly diminishing head. Smelt of pumpkin pie! Mostly cinnamon, some cloves and pumpkin. Taste was upfront cinnamon with a light pumpkin sweetness, followed by the moderate cloves taste and some nutmeg, with a tinge of pumpkin sweetness, on a medium length finish that finishes with light spice aromas and an awkwardly bitter aftertaste, like pumpkin rinds/skins. Mouthfeel was light to medium bodied, fizzy, slightly dry and some moderate/harsh astringency. Overall, the aroma is wonderful, the flavor is almost there, but the harsh bitter finish leaves you afraid to take another sip.

On tap at CK Diggs in Troy, MI. Good flavor with a lot of spice and cinnamon. An amber colored beer. Probably not a beer that you could guzzle all night, though. I guess I always expect a lot from these pumpkin ales and Iíve never really had one that meets my expectations...this one comes close, though.

Gota try an "odd" Michigan beer when you find it on draft at a bowling alley. Very light golden color. Smells spicy but not pumkiny. And that is how it tastes. Yes it has pumpkin flavor but it is not a heavy ďdesertĒ or fruit beer. It is crisp and spicy. All the condiments of pumpkin pie such as nutmeg, cinnamon, and honey but not the real strong pumpkin taste.

From notes. First reviewed 9/3/2011. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Screamin Pumpkin pours a translucent light caramel color with a foamy off-white that shows good retention and leaves a bit of lace on the glass. The aroma is very good. Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, and all spice combine with the pumpkin to give a nice pumpkin-forward aroma. Lightly sweet malt in the background. The malt comes in a bit too soft. Slightly sweet but lacking enough punch, the pumpkin really dominates the flavor along with the spices. Cinnamon mostly, but a bit of nutmeg and all spice contribute to the pumpkin pie flavor. The end has an astringent grassy bitterness that is fairly off-putting. The finish is a little bit bitter. The body is a little bit light for what I would like given the flavor profile. The malt really does not hold up to the strong pumpkin and spices. The carbonation kind of gets lost. It starts light sweet and sticky, but by the end there is a light astringency. The aroma is by far the best part about this beer. The taste is a little bit off to me with the lack of balance between the malt and pumpkin and also the astringent bitterness that comes in at the end. There are better pumpkin beers out there.

interesting-looking bottle, gotta be worth a try. dark copper colored liquid with a thin ring of white head, crystal-clear filtered. pumpkin pie spice - nutmeg, cinnamon, whatever the hell else goes in to a pumpkin pie, itís all there. it covers up any "beer" characteristics. thatís not to say that all you can taste is the spice, but the only lasting impression of this beer is that itís a fun fall seasonal.

12 oz bottle (low fill - probably 8 oz in there) from Dansting. Pour is brown, red, golden with a very thin white head. Aroma is BIG pumpkin spice, cinnamon and ginger. Smelled very much like a slice of pumpkin pie - more so than any Pumpkin beer I have had in the past. Taste is also a bunch of pumpkin pie, really interesting taste. I even thought I picked up some whipped cream in there. Finish is clean, though a touch metallic. Somewhat watery palate, though palate picked up as it warmed. Overall an interesting beer, and one of the better Pumpkin beers I have had.
